His Brooklyn cousin Sammy Clay is looking for a partner to create heroes, stories, and art for the latest novelty to hit America the comic book. Inspired by their own fears and dreams, Kavalier and Clay create the "Escapists," "The Monitor," and "Luna Moth," inspired by the beautiful Rosa Saks, who will become linked by powerful ties to both men.

Fantastisk - språket och berättelsen. Tog lång tid att läsa - inte det enklaste språket men somliga meningar så underfundigt bra att de måste läsas flera gånger.
